Chris Jones scored 15 points to lead No. 3 Louisville to a 71-57 victory over Fairfield on Saturday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament.

Montrezl Harrell added 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Cardinals (5-0), who extended their winning streak to 21 games, including last season's run to the NCAA championship.

Maurice Barrow paced Fairfield (1-4) with 14 points and Marcus Gilbert chipped in with 11.

The Stags stayed with the Cardinals for much of the first half and led 11-9 midway through it. But Louisville went on a 28-12 run to close the half and led by as many as 21 in the second half.

The Cardinals will play No. 24 North Carolina in the tournament's championship game on Sunday. The Tar Heels beat Richmond in Saturday's first semifinal.
